Play Fair

Girls in the Game alumnus, Citywide Initiatives Manager

Title IX means opportunity. When Title IX did not exist girls didn’t have the many opportunities available and I believe sports have the ability to teach you skills that you can take off the field and into other aspects of life, like grit, teamwork and responsibility; skills that I often use in the workplace. In my position at Girls in the Game, I have the ability to create programs that allow more girls to play sports, some for the first time. Having the opportunity to play sports as a girl and the positive impact it has had on my life, drives me to provide all those same valuable opportunities for girls.
